Better Than Them: A Song

Here is a song that I wrote last year. I wanted to share it with you guys. I hope you enjoy ❤

 

‘Better Than Them’

I don’t think you made the right choice,

Didn’t even let your people have a voice,

Say you’re doing this for the greater good,

Decided to kill another just because you could.

All of those innocent lives lost,

So you could protect yourselves, but at what cost?

Seems you don’t take a moment just to think of what you’re doing.

 

You can’t change this,

You can’t turn back time,

This will haunt you forever.

Steal away a future to protect your own and mine,

It will never make you any better…than them.

 

I won’t say I’m proud of what you did,

I’ll be mourning all of those lost instead,

And hoping maybe one day that you’ll see the light.

And every one of those broken hearts,

A million and one lives torn apart,

And haunted by the terrors of their past.

After all of this time,

Did you think that committing a crime,

Would finally set them free?

You’re wrong – you’ve locked us in; you turned the key.

 

You can’t change this,

You can’t turn back time,

This will haunt you forever.

Steal away a future to protect your own and mine,

It will never make you any better…than them.

 

Sat home at night with head in hands,

Wondering how you ever thought up this plan.

You’ll understand in the end that nobody has won,

Finally, see that it’s not our game to play,

We were better off leaving it that way,

But thanks to you, the damage has been done.

 

You can’t change this,

You can’t turn back time,

This will haunt you forever.

Steal away a future to protect your own and mine,

It will never make you any better…than them

 

xoxo
